At The End Of The Day...It's Good To Know Where The Turf Is Laid.


Astroturf, that is.

The patch of fake, non-grassroots, plastic sod up for discussion today is a fine little pipeline boosting outfit called "British Columbians for Prosperity".

The fine folks laying this turf used to have 'International' in their name but Alison, who has done all the digging on this one, figures that was likely removed because they getting revved-up to start smearing environmentalist advocacy groups in an ethically oily manner for their ties to similar grass roots groups in the States.

Interestingly, it turns out that a certain 'crisis consultant' is apparently working for this particular group of turf layers:


Wonder if this will be noted by various and sundry on-air folks the next time the good Ms. Mills shows up on a CBC TeeVee or LongWave station near you to give her latest 'insightful' commentary on various and sundry goings on in British Columbia?

Personally, I won't be holding my breath for full disclosure from the MoCo....After all they have never, to the best of my knowledge, mentioned Ms. Mills involvement in a most interesting internet gaming initiative either....

Usually when we hear of such appointments it involves a well know high priced individual. But I guess when you spend all your money in court.... you have to settle for the bottom of the pile.

I dunno Guy.

There is a club.

And to the members go the spoils - which is why the flack-hackery is so involved in all of this stuff I reckon.
